One Fine Season is baseball fiction crafted around Christian/spiritual themes, an uplifting, inspirational novel that tells of exceptional achievement - with the help of both heavenly and human guidance – in the face of crushing personal loss. In examining some of life's timeless questions, the book offers at times "out-of-the-box" perspectives, while emphasizing the importance of family bonds, integrity and lasting friendship. As one reader writes: "One Fine Season appears at first to be a light, easy read, until you think about what you just read!"
Best friends Pete O’Brien and Danny Grace are gifted college athletes, both hoping for successful careers as professional baseball players. When a tragedy on a rural wine country road changes everything, Danny struggles to overcome his suffocating grief to fulfill a pact the young men had made years earlier.
An opportunity for Danny to achieve his dream appears unexpectedly when events conspire to thrust him into the major league spotlight with the Sacramento Miners, a new expansion team. Along the way, three guides – an aging catcher, a highly educated centerfielder and a wise old manager – as well as a beautiful young woman emerge to help the rookie deal with his shattered faith, and lead him on a journey of spiritual and emotional healing that climaxes when he comes face to face with the universe’s ultimate plan for all humankind.
